A Landmark Day - A Community Member Joins the LM Team for the FIRST TIME

On Thursday night, Aurelien Francois, graduate of ISD Valenciennes, Charter Member of LM, modern-day Alexis de Tocqueville, and transportation designeur extraordinaire, landed at Boston Logan International airport to join the Local Motors team.























"Aurel" (as he is known to his close friends in the community) is the first member of the team who has come entirely from his interaction in the community. What an incredible milestone! 6 months ago we didn't even have a site. 4 months ago Aurel didn't even know we existed, and 2 months ago he didn't even know that he was destined to be the next member of the LM team.

















But, against all odds, today LM is richer by one phenomenal designer, and the community is richer by one of our own, setting up shop at the LM HQ. His mark as a careful study of the business and a core user from the international community is already being left on the company. Watch for the improvements which Aurel spearheads.

When you get a chance, drop him a line of welcome, and ask him how the experience is going. He has been knee-deep in the Rally Fighter, learning new English, picking Fall apples in New England, studying all of the American car proportions, and basically settling in like a Champion car designer.


















We are all so lucky to have Aurelien with us and expect even more great things from him now that he is at the LM HQ.

All I can say is simply 'impressive' in a paradigm-shifting mind-blowing kind of way!

Wow, that's cool! Welcome Aurel.

A great way for Aurel to practice English is to blog ;)

Thanks for all your comments. I am just realizing that I am in Wareham. So exciting, and also so many things to learn or improve. I think I will soon be able to post my first report concerning the American way of life... from my French eyes.
